Playing in a drizzle much of the day, John Huston shot a par-72 to build his lead in the Mercedes Championships to four shots.
Despite the soggy conditions at the La Costa Resort course, Huston was 11-under at 205 through three rounds of the PGA’s opening tournament of 1995.
Fred Couples moved into contention with a 68 that left him in a second-place tie with Craig Stadler, who shot a 73 to drop back to 7-under.
